Ethics are only intuitivemotional thoughts (split from Should we lie to people for the greater good?)

Hi!

 

I didn't read the topic, it was really long. I wish to hit the problem, that ethic is not logically understood. Ethics are only intuitivemotional thoughts. Can this be true?

 

Like science can study that cell in brain correlates to certain thing. 

 

But being loving as the goal of life, is intuitivemotionalthought and can't be studied methological way.

 

I think arts are also like that. You can say that we have hermeneutical epochs, but cant logially study why tragedy is overally humane in painting.

 

Please, argue against.

 

I wish to know modern philosphy.

It can be both. in fact, if it is not both, it's useless.

Loving has nothing to do with ethics. What you need ethics for is to prescribe how you ought to treat the people you don't love, or particularly care about, and even more significantly, the people who get in your way, whom you can use, whom you fear. It's about what allows a society to survive, prosper and thrive - all quite reasonable aims. So the "study" of ethics is really concerned with how disparate human beings can coexist. The "ought" is added later, when the "how" is fitted to the philosophical principles on which a particular society is organized.

I think it isn't.
